Transportation, Land Use


This article focuses on the development of smart growth, which includes sustainable transportation policies and more efficient uses of land. Smart growth was developed to combat some of the negative consequences of transportation and land use laws developed in the past fifty years which created dependence on motor vehicles. The article examines these policies and their inconsistency with smart growth, considers steps to be taken toward a more efficient transportation system and the difficulties in invoking these changes, and uses Atlanta as a case study in the opportunities and challenges for smart growth and sustainable transportation policies.
